    Early 1999, some kid at my daycare had a whole bunch of cards and I thought they were cool. He gave me an eevee. Later in the school year, there was a guy who brought his Red Version to school every day and I liked him so I got the game so I could have half a clue what he was talking about when he babbled on about it. It turns out I liked the game a lot more than him. Hence, I still have Red, but I don't even remember this kid's name. I think it was Tyler or Travis or something Tr-.

    6 1/2 to 7 years ago, which unless you followed japan, should probably be you answer. 7 1/2 at most. First Pokegame that came out was in Sept. 1998 in the states.

    Let's see...in terms of Pokemon as a whole, 7 years almost. I was introduced to the TGC and anime when I was ten, and I'm 17 in a couple of weeks.

    As for the games, it's almost 6 exactly. I got Red for my 11th birthday.

    Since about two months after its debut in the UK. It grew on me and never left. So about seven years would be my answer.

    I started to like pokemon ever since I got my Blue version when it first came out in America, like around 1998 or something like that.

    I discovered Pokemon when my cousin gave me my first Pokemon card. It was an Ivysaur. I still wasn't quite the fan. I thought the anime was "cool" (all the popular kids watched it.) So I saw the first movie, so I would be cool. Since thenI watched the anime, then my brother got Blue. I got Red. I fell addicted to it and the games became my favorite part of Pokemon. A year later it became "gay", and everyone hated it, including my brother. I stole his Blue though.

    I've been a Pokemaniac for 1 year, starting the first December after FR/LG came out. So I'll put 2 years.

    It surprises me that this many people have been with Pokemon since Red/Blue. As for myself, I got purchased the game within a month or two of it being released. I remeber that I didn't even understand how to withdraw and deposit Pokemon, so my only Pokemon around Fuschia was a Lv. 70 Venasaur or something :p

    I wanna say I've been into it since the beginning, but I want to be more specific and say I've been into Pokemon since the year 1999. I became interested in it by the anime series and then it moved on to the games and now I'm 16 and still loving the series. My first Pokemon game was Blue for the Gameboy and then I lost the cartridge. Then later I got Gold for the GB and still have it to this day. I remember wanting either Ruby or Sapphire(I got Sapphire) so bad, I saved up about 50 dollars just to get the game and then spent Saturday evening playing it.
